Hot, exposed, and wide open. There is a single 10 ft jack pine to huddle behind if you want shade and the deciduous cover hasn't filled back in yet.

Steep rock landing, site surrounding by 8-10' small birch trees. Enough size for some wind protection/shade but not for bear bags/heavy laundry lines. Many raspberries and blueberries around the site. Dead standing cedar abundant for easy dry firewood. Skunked x2 days for lakers. Would recommend pushing to Gab or Sag if you can.

Steep rock face access to site. This site has very little shade and no good trees for hanging bear bag. This side does have some blueberries and raspberries. We had no luck fishing for LT and the lake was very windy.

Devastated by cavity lake fire. Still recovering. Unless you like very exposed, recent fire sites avoid this one.
